Political writer to read in Sylva

Written by 

Martin A. Dyckman, a retired associate editor of the St. Petersburg Time who lives part of the year in Waynesville, will discuss Florida political history and present his latest book, Reubin O’D. Askew and the Golden Age of Florida Politics at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 9, at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva.

Dyckman is also the author of His Century: The Courage of Governor LeRoy Collins and A Most Disorderly Court: Scandal and Reform in the Florida Judiciary. In 1984, the Florida Bar Foundation recognized his writing on judicial reform with its Medal of Honor Award.  A book signing will follow the discussion.
